MIDTERM REQUIREMENT for BSN 2B

Please check the specific topic assigned to you and develop a multi-paragraph paper (with at least 5 paragraphs). I need a well-polished paper – free from grammatical errors and incoherence of ideas. You can help yourself by doing some prewriting activities first. The evaluation will focus on the technical aspects, that is the variety of sentence structure and on the mechanics (grammar, capitalization, punctuation, etc). Submit this on FEBRUARY 21, 2011 during our ENG 015 meeting at 2:30 PM. Type your paper in a short bond, double-spaced, Courier New, font size 12. Observe proper margin. I will give instructions on how you write your name on the 21st.
